This podcast is an awesome blend of evidence based parenting research, concrete tips, and humor. I find it super helpful and I love listening to it.
This podcast is fabulous for anyone to listen to that has kids of their own or works with kids professionally. Sara and John offer so many clever tips; the "money" tips are my favorite. Sara and John are clearly experts in their field but don't come across as perfect or looking down on others for making mistakes. It is great to hear the stories they share as I feel that parents are able to relate.
Practically perfect podcast
John and Sara do a great job of sharing information on an important topic. They give practical advice that all parents can implement into their daily routine. I highly recommend this podcast to anyone who is trying to raise kids. It's a tough job and all parents could use some support.
